Following a jam-packed 2023, David Guetta has set the tone for 2024 with a huge new Steve Aoki & KAAZE remix of ‘When We Were Young’, his hit single featuring GRAMMY-winning pop star Kim Petras.

‘When We Were Young’ is fast becoming another smash hit for the French mastermind, with nearly 30m global streams, 100k TikTok creations and Spotify chart rankings including #53 in Netherlands, #103 in Belgium, #139 in Finland, and #195 in France and Norway.

The track is sure to continue gaining traction with this new interpretation from the Grammy-nominated, globally renowned DJ Steve Aoki and Swedish producer KAAZE. The pair bring all of their party-rousing production heft to this remix, adding huge industrial synths and snare build ups to the original. 

A futuristic banger that thematically looks to the past, ‘When We Were Young’ is a high BPM stormer crafted around a pitched-up interpolation of Supertramp’s classic ‘The Logical Song’, with Kim Petras providing nostalgic verses about the innocence of youth. 

Bringing his star power to this new remix, Steve Aoki is a true visionary, counting nearly three billion streams to his name. Billboard described the 2x-GRAMMY-nominated music producer, artist, fashion designer, entrepreneur, NFT futurist, and Dim Mak Records founder as “one of the most in-demand entertainers in the world.” 

Rising Swedish producer KAAZE is fast becoming a worldwide force in progressive house music. With a spot in DJ Mag’s Top 100, performances at Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival and collaborations with artists including Tiësto, Hardwell, Maddix and David Guetta, KAAZE is a musician whose star is on the rise.
